SUBTITLES NOT IN PICTURE
Angles And Demons BD [b] half in half out of the active picture

Count me in as a RANT for watching Angles And Demons BD last night in 'scope and then realizing the subtitles were NOT just in the picture area....so fricking confusing. For a while I'd switch from anamorphic mode to full mode and back, finally left it on full mode with the lens in place.....ugh.

Maybe we need a list of all BD Players that will shift the sub titles. OPPO and Phillips are well known and I've heard Cambridge Audio also does this, so are there any others?

THE JACKEL Blu-ray [region b] has STs in the picture. Whilst the R4 DVD has the original 'burned' STs, these are brand new over layed into the image. Well done Universal Well almost. What is with the 'window boxing' for the opening credits?
post #305 of 354
Not sure if this thread is being updated, INCEPTION [region b] has STs in the picture.
post #306 of 354
I watched 'The Banquet' last weekend and the STs were in the picture (UK BluRay so I guess that's region A?). Can't say I'd rush to watch it again though...

Micmacs (Sony Blu-ray) has CIH-safe subtitles in the picture.

If I am not mistaken, the UK should be Region B.

THE EXPENDABLES (Region B BD) has STs in the picture.

SALT [B BD] has STs in the frame for CIH.

I watched VANTAGE POINT last night. Cool film except STs were half in the black bars and I ended up watching this in letterboxed format.

As a CIH enthusiast Mark your breaking the law watching a movie in letterbox

Don't you have a player that does subtitle shift?

Yeah I know. Still feel dirty about it too

As for a player, I still am running a pov Samsung BDP-1500, so no sub title shift, no DVD-A/SACD playback over HDMI etc.

Unfortunately, the Philips models sold in the US don't do the subtitle shift. "Philips" here is really Funai.

Back to the subject at hand, Sony's new Blu-ray release of 'A Woman, A Gun and a Noodle Shop' has CIH-safe subtitles. It's not a very good movie, unfortunately.

Really, roughly what cost? Tell me it does DVD-A and SACD over HDMI and I will buy one anyway

I'll have to check if it does DVD-A and SACD.
The main thing is the subtitle shift, you have to give it a firmware upgrade to enable it.

Just make sure you firmware update and choose 21:9 for aspect ratio and that will allow subtitle shift.

Thanks for that. It shipped today, so hopefully tomorrow I will find a blue or red tag in the PO Box. Hey Frank, it looks like you forget an 'f' in shift?
post #324 of 354
Lol fixed thanks Mark didn't realise.

Did you see the 2700 also I showed you?
post #326 of 354
How did you go Mark?
post #327 of 354
Hereafter on Blu-ray (Warner Bros.) is not CIH-safe. The movie has quite a bit of French dialogue, and the subtitles go into the letterbox bar.

I ended up with the Phillips BDP3000 which whilst it doesn't pass PLUGE does solve all ST issues. And for the price I am not complaining anyway.

Since owning it, I've been able to watch a heap of films that I deliberately held off from watching. It became a case of, if I could not watch them in Scope, I'd rather not watch them.

is there a thread mentioning all scalers, players AND media centers
that allow subtitles repositioning ?
thanks

I kind of thought it should a part of this thread on (Page 1?) which might have worked when this thread was a sticky. Now that it is not, and many have the OPPO, I guess AVS felt this thread had surpassed its usefulness.

There are no Scalers that can break the protected video stream, so this must be done at the source via dedicated player. Those using a HTPC have reported that when streaming ripped BDs that they can add or shift subtitles.

I personally use a Phillips BDP3000 for its 21:9 mode.
